If your unit has a Vista label and it has been downgraded to XP, you should have the Vista upgrade DVDs that already came with the unit (yes, you are entitled to them). Windows 7 is an upgrade for Vista. So as long as your unit is "Vista" capable, you shouldn't see a problem getting the Windows 7. But if I were you, I would still contact the local sales group to CLARIFY this.
Do NOT PM me with technical issues. Post in the forum for assistance. Thanks
That is correct. As long as you have a valid Vista product key and COA, you will be able to take part in the Windows 7 upgrade. However, I believe that only system purchased after June 26, 2009 are eligible for the upgrade.
Also, system that has Windows Vista Home Basic as the pre-installed software are not eligible for the upgrade program from the website.
